Gynaecomastia Sergery

Frequently asked questions

These include some discomfort, risk of infection, risk of bleeding, degrees of asymmetry, prolonged swelling, unevenness, fat necrosis and poor fat survival. There is also a very rare risk of fat embolism, a potentially serious complication, mainly relating to Brazilian buttock lifts, which is not something I offer or recommend.

Fat embolism occurs when, the fat that is injected directly enters the bloodstream and causes systemic complications. These include fat entering the lungs or brain tissue, causing a pulmonary embolism or stroke. This can happen with deep fat injections in the buttock muscles, where large blood vessels exist.

This risk is minimal when fat is injected in the breasts, as there are no such large vessels in the area.

Fat contains a large number of stem cells, which are undifferentiated and have the potential of becoming any tissue in the body. This is one of the advantages of fat grafting, as it can improve skin quality and even rejuvenate scarring. However, when fat is introduced into breasts, there is a theoretical risk that these stem cells could also promote or accelerate any existing breast cancer. It is therefore imperative, that your breasts are examined thoroughly for lumps, a careful family history of breast cancer is taken and special investigations are performed. For anyone over the age of 40 considering this procedure, a mammogram will be mandatory.

With all procedures involving liposuction, there is always a risk of unevenness in the areas where the fat is removed. Power assisted liposuction is used, for a smoother less aggressive fat removal, leading to less bruising, swelling and increased fat graft survival.

The degree to which grafted fat survives is reduced by factors such as smoking (which reduces the blood supply to all tissues in the body) and medication such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, like ibuprofen.

If fat grafting is used as the sole modality for cosmetic breast augmentation, a mild to moderate change and a natural result should be expected. There has to be available fat elsewhere (donor sites), for the procedure to be feasible and this sometimes needs to be repeated for extra volume. It is impossible to create very large breasts just with lipofilling and as a rule of thumb, 150cc of transferred fat will enhance breasts by only one cup size. In my experience if much more than 200cc are injected per side, then there is a significant risk of fat loss and fat necrosis. The unpredictability of fat survival makes this procedure unsuitable for those that require a considerable enhancement and a silicone implant might be the better choice.
